Land of the Loud: Tin Drum



























This album is a LIVE recording of LAND OF THE LOUD. The loudest performance ever recorded! (And that's the album's title too.) People left the concert with their whole bodies ringing. Their ears were bleeding.

"A truly awful experience," said Linda Yates of the 1995 concert where her brother's pacemaker quit and she had to rush him to the hospital. Unfortunately, she had tried to adjust her brother's hearing aid and turned off his pacemaker instead. Truth be told, she wasn't supposed to be at the concert with her brother. "I thought they weren't supposed to go above 85 decibels at concerts anymore," Yates complained.

Check out the performance pieces:

1) Raw Jet Engine Amplified,
2) Beethoven's Ear to the Floor,
3) DINOSAUR,
4) March to Hell,
5) We Didn't Make It to Hell, We're Still Marching,
6) LAND OF THE LOUD,
7) Thumper Bunnies,
8) Blast Off,
9) Wind Tunnel,
10) Like a Whoosh,
11) Drum On and On,
12) Three Encore Finish,
13) This Is IT,
14) OK, The Ode to Oskar,
15) TIN DRUM SCREECH.

Tragically, bassist Ron McFinney's hands were burned off in the concert following this one when the jet engine spun off its base.
